With a quick glance at the pic above, you might be thinking the title of this post is a lie. But while she looks a little different to the often outlandish and poised pop star she normally is, that is indeed Lady Gaga with Bradley Cooper in the pic above. However, it looks like she’ll be going by her real name, Stefani Germanotta, for the movie.
Warner Brothers describes the movie as a reimagining of the classic A Star Is Born, which has come to the screen three times before, in 1937 with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, in 1950 with Judy Garland and James Mason and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
In this version Bradley Cooper will be country music star Jackson Maine, who’s career is on the skids. He discovers Ally (Germanotta) and helps her find huge success. While they begin to fall for one another, things become increasingly difficult as his career fails while hers goes through the roof.
As well as starring, the film will also mark Bradley Cooper’s feature directorial debut. Don’t expect to see the movie for a while though, as it’s not currently due out until September 2018. It’s likely the first pic was released due to the fact that Gaga has been onstage at Coachella filming the movie in the last few days.
